Emily was patient with me as a beginner. Her instructions were very detailed, easily understood and very helpful. Her pace was just right - not too slow, not too fast. She took the time to observe my technique and make corrections gently as needed. I would highly recommend Emily for online violin instruction to students of all ages.

I’ve been learning with Emily for 4 years now and have seen major improvements with my playing. She is such a dedicated, hardworking teacher. I have gotten so many amazing opportunities working with her, such as joining youth orchestras, playing in recitals, concerts, etc. No matter your level, she always motivates you to do better. I wish I could learn with her forever :((

So far so good. Emily was extremely patient and my daughter said she liked it a lot.

Nathan is the best viola teacher I’ve ever had. His vast knowledge of the instrument allowed him to explain certain concepts in a methodical way that made me feel like I was truly learning. In addition to being a great teacher he is an equally great performer who continues to model exactly what I want to be as a violist. I can not recommend Nathan more!

Thank for getting me back into playing Max!! After sometime off, I really didn’t think I would ever enjoy learning to play the violin again, but your clear instructions make me feel like I am working towards something that actually pays off! I’ve already seen a big improvement in my playing and am enjoying the learning process so much. Looking forward to learning Book 4!!

Initially I was a complete beginner. I've been studying with Rob for a couple of months now. I think I'm making good progress and certainly a lot of that is Rob's doing. Very personable and flexible, he's really taught me a lot and is really good at teaching in a way that has me progressing steadily and not being overwhelmed by such a challenging instrument.
Jeff
great first lesson. Personable and informative.
Lin
Identified many of my errors right away, has given instruction on how to correct. Have noticed definite improvement each week, and given new skills each week to practice .(I'm not likely to pass this pattern in the near future!)

"Megan is so pleasant and fun! She has strong focus on technique, and explains these practices in a way I can understand. Since I am a beginner, and adult learner, it's important that my music teacher is patient and cheers me along throughout the process - Megan definitely has that gift. I also appreciate that she writes down technique tips and exercises for me to practice at home (so I remember what she taught me in class.) I'm looking forward to continuing to learn from Megan, and play music beautifully on my Viola one day."

"My 13 year old granddaughter just finished her 1st year of viola at school in June 2014 and she wanted to take summer lessons to stay sharp. There were a lot of teachers available within a 10-15 minute drive, but after trying other teachers, we chose Mark (a 30 minute drive ) because, as others have commented, he is extremely patient and teaches by correcting, not criticizing. He simply has a gift for teaching. I have never regretted the extra drive. Once you've had a lesson with him, you won't want to go to anyone else."

"For two years, I took viola lessons with Chen. In my seven years of studying music, I can confidently say that Chen has been one of my favorite music teachers.

Chen is a very effective teacher. He is very patient and is constantly thinking of new ways to tackle solving a student’s struggles. If you put in the time, work, and practice, he will help you to advance in playing your instrument with greater proficiency.

Since Chen is very knowledgeable in his craft, he helped me to know what to look for when purchasing a new bow. He knows many practice strategies and techniques to get your scales, etudes, and repertoire to become performance ready.

When I first started taking lessons with Chen, I could hardly play the viola at all. After two years of learning under his instruction, he had guided me to learn and develop the skills needed to get me through three college orchestra concerts, becoming the principal viola in that orchestra, performing two college solo recitals, and joining a university community orchestra.

Thanks to Chen, he has taken me to levels of proficiency with the viola I would never imagine I would get to. If you are looking to learn how to play violin or viola, I would definitely recommend Chen as your teacher. Thank you, Chen."
